    Smelly Feet!

    Hey,
    I'm new here and so maybe this isn't the right board but i saw a thread about smelly breath so i'm hoping this topic will fit in here. I am a 17 year old girl and have such smelly feet! I've tried everything from spraying my feet, to spraying my shoes. When i get home, i have to go straight into the bathroom and watch my feet but even as i go upstairs, it starts smelling up the house. It's gotten to the point that i can't go to friends houses after school because i won't be able to take off my shoes. Am i the only girl with this problem? Does anyone have any remedies or ideas? Please help me!

    If you wear dark colored socks that could be causing some of the problem!

    make sure you wear cotton socks. also you can put some talcum powder or baby powder on your feet before you put your socks on to help keep them dry.
    it's really weird but i used to have this problem too when i was younger and it just resolved itself.
    i bet you

    Dark colored socks can make your feet sweat more and sweating more can cause odors!

    Thanks for answering. I have to wear a uniform which includes dark grey or black knee socks or tights. Therefore, 5 days a week i'm stuck in dark tights. I will for sure start wearing white socks on the weekend though. I have tried those odor eating ball things. I really do hope it resolves by itself.
